VIDEO: See inside the West Seattle Bridge stabilization project

At Monday’s City Council briefing on the West Seattle Bridge (WSB coverage here), SDOT mentioned more details of the stabilization work – one-ton brackets, 300-foot-long steel ropes. Today, the department released a video tour of the work inside the bridge, with a firsthand look at those components and more – see it above (or here).

    Thanks for the update. People, especially WS people appreciate good information on what has been a very upsetting situation. We are quite a bit more incensed when there is little or no information from the city, or if we can tell it is bs. The City should be giving Seattleites at least quarterly reports on the issues like homelessness, allowed crime, and the budget especially as many of us can read financial reports and expect accountability, as the council is currently throwing around millions.

    OK, I watched. And now I’m not sure if I feel BETTER or WORSE about this project. (I mean, there were a lot of weird scrawling and willy-nilly thumbtacks.) It is nice they’re being transparent. At this point – since they’re going to all this work – how about laying down about a million of those tension cables, and make a rope-bridge. I’m serious… Just…get moving. Please!

    I need to get in there with one of my high end 360 cameras and some lights for a proper tour ;)

      I wish they would let you record it DiverLaura.  What they produced is not really a movie.

Sorry, comment time is over.
